can take issue with. he going to devalue the dollar little further? give tax breaks to companies he is taking credit, he wants to spend more taxpayer money on infrastructure, math and science, ashley, where people who buy it. ashley: what's interesting is that he has managed to frame this, if you like by blaming the rich people who are just not paying their fair share. be gaining some traction. >> we have written a lot about this. it is a claim that he repeated in this advertisement. he said let's reduce the deficit by $4 trillion and raise the taxes on the wealthy. that means nothing in an economy where we would be running more than $1 trillion the annual deficit. mitt romney needs to come out and just do the arithmetic for people. the average american understands state of this economy. the banks on wall street monday doing good,. ashley: case in point. ohio, which is a very important swing state, if you look at their personal income since december 2007, it has risen a whopping 2.1%. in nearly five years. mr. obama has a lead not. >> yes, the pools are an open question. i don't buy
could be accurate or not. what is the person saying there should not be a millionaire tax or should be. who is the special interest dominating that message point coming out and how does the voter get through it? i think one the most amazing thicks happening in the country when you look at the president number heys doing well. what's fascinated about the amount of money being spent by the cross roads and the entity for some reason the message is not coming through it's not compel fpg you look at the swing states that we were going to be remarkably close are going to trend toward tbhawm a way that somebody thinks to seem unless the debate set the presidential election. it's clear the spt heading toward a environment he has a advantage. romney is going to be exceptional. >> tune in. >> fiewn in and watch. let watch. >> i'm excited. >> talk about in next week in class. >> would you taunt the cross road different and you engage in more localized races congressional and senate how you choose your priorities since so you have a broader scope. >> yeah. that's a good question. we're focused on
growth. if you have taxes going up in the united states and expenditures going down ultimately that has to happen if you are going to solve that math problem in a slow growth while. >> at the same in europe and the same everywhere. we all grew up with spending more money. we only have to do two things, spend more money to charge of the economy and spend less money in order to shrink the deficit. all goes to show whether you're a country or a company is when you get in trouble here options are reduced. and so this is not easy and of course the options have been reduced. you can't go out and have another stimulus and look at the consequences to the balance sheet as a result of what that will be. what you are going to have to do i think is you are going to have to not shrink -- not push austerity in the near term because that is the fiscal cliff then you will have to keep going on certain things and not the stimulus but not take away the punch bowl within the near term but you are going to have to convince the market and the lenders and galvanize the country that in the longer term you are
another $5 trillion on tax cuts that favor the very wealthy, that -- don't do, vote. vote. [cheers and applause] >> you stop when no idea. one thing he did not do in his first four years anything is going to do in the next four years is to raise taxes. is there anything that raising taxes will help grow the economy? his plan is to continue what he's done before. the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> the yemeni president was in washington d.c. today to speak at the wilson's manner. mr. hadi took over the presidency in february after an uprising forced a previous president to step down after 33 years in power. security remains a major turning ament with president hadi offering to hold talks with al qaeda and other militant groups to take down their weapons. jane harman gives introductory remarks. >> do we have some more room for the president's party? let's see -- okay. good afternoon to welcome to the wilson center. i am jane harman, president and eeo. the wilson center, a living m
are facing having to deal with spending cuts and tax increases at the end of the year. is so much of that already baked in that who wins november doesn't matter so much? >> yeah, i think there is some truth to that, but i do think the market at least in a knee-jerk fashion, if you were to get a republican sweep, i think there will be this negative reaction in the treasury market that there will be a short honeymoon period where the expectation will be things will get done, we will see perhaps some uncertainty removed. when you remove uncertainty, that's not good for treasuries. dagen: not by any stretch of the imagination. in terms of what you have seen happening in the ten year, how much does the federal reserve get credit for that and what it is going to undertake because again you have charles plosser of one of the fed banks kind of shooting down what the central bank is doing? >> you know, i mean it is interesting, if you talk i think to chairman bernanke, he will tell you that the fed has played a role in bringing treasury rates down, but, you know, i think it is more of a sa
of the unemployed and the poor. that is where a flat tax comes in. it allows attraction of the capital abroad. sam nunn was correct, you have to cut government spending. that has to happen, especially entitlements where you pay people not to work. there are other ways of bringing the debt down. cool ones. for example, how about a federal state, local, tax amnesty program? there are a lot of people in the underground economy that would be brought above ground with amnesty program. i estimate a federal, state and local tax amnesty program would raise about $800 billion in 90 days. you can also sell some assets off. camped person -- camp pendleton is 500 square miles in california. why not sell it? >>neil: my point, when you say it is too big to handle, you are missing the point, you cannot cut $16 trillion debt but you can boom your way from it. we are losing sight and what bill clinton learned in 1993, 1994, if you present a plan that looks credible like you want to reverse the direction, sometimes that creates a boom in and of itself and inspires confidence in the market that has little confidence

where they asked whether you would take the bargain of one dollar's worth of tax increases or $10 worth of basically tax cuts and everybody raised their hands and said they would not accept that. we have become a country where -- it is not just one side, both sides, but more one side now than ever is not willing to be realistic about how we can tackle these challenges. if there is a crisis that i see in the united states for the long term, it is not the temporal issue of how we will deal with money. because i am very confident we will be able to deal with that. it is how will we bring that -- bring back our sense of what we can accomplish together as americans when we are realistic about those challenges. that is the thing i think about the word "crisis" in this country. >> mayor castro is not the first to suggest that. for 10 years now, we heard that the government is not asking all of us to do enough. >> it is interesting. the word "sacrifice," when i hear a politician say that, it usually means grab your wallet. it usually means increasing taxes. and i will give president obama credi

failure economically hurts everybody. the degree to which he is piling up debt, which is absorbing tax money that could have gone to school, health care, now it will pay interest on the debt, that hurts everybody. in many way, it is almost sad to look at the speech and realize the degree to which he has failed to achieve any of the goals he implied were his goals in 2007. >> greta: he did say he was going to get health care. that, he did do, whether you like it or not. but one thing, you speak about the debt, what he said -- and he was rather sarcastic about politicians in this speech. what he said, in part, don't worry about trillions of dollars in debt, someone else will pay. he was being sarcastic about politician who is have no concern about the debt. now, you fast-forward to now, in the last 3 years, $1.3 trillion and nobody -- he is want working on t. capital hill is not working on t. we are return running up the debt. we have no idea with sequesterations and the tax cuts. this is what he promised in 2007 as a candidate. he thought it was important then? >> i look -- i think this

biden. [video clip] >> they voted against extending the middle class tax cuts. why? because they were holding it hostage to make sure they could continue their tax cuts. and romney adds another tax cut with a total cost to the economy of $1.70 trillion. it is $250,000 a year in additional tax cuts for those same 120,000 families and anybody making more than $1 million. >> all these promises were made on the idea of hope and change and it sounded pretty good to people. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old idea that a failed time and again. borrowing and spending and regulating and taxing and printing money, all these things do not lead to prosperity and. all these policies say take power from people, many from families and a successful small businesses and job creators, ascended to washington and then they decide. that does not work. host: that's a taste of the vice-presidential nominees over the weekend. they will go head-to-head on october 11 in their only official the bait. let's stick to your calls. will the vice-presidential candidat

caucuses control their own taxes. republicans, their caucus would control all the taxes that republicans pay, and we republicans could pay for all the b.t. bombers and the infrastructure, all the things that we want, and the democrats can take all of their taxes they collect and pay for the social programs. and then, in the middle, all the sings that we both absolutely agree on, we just cut it in half and pay for that and then that way the things that each other don't like, both sides, we'd be able to pay for their own things that they want. host: that is a very interesting way of looking at taxation, randy. we're going to continue our conversation about one party versus divided government with paul. paul is calling from wisconsin. he's on our line for democrats. go ahead, paul. caller: hey. yeah, i definitely believe in a one-party system. i think if barack obama would have been able to get his policies throughout, his unemployment rate would probably be about 7% with all them jobs programs. you know, the republicans were trying to do everything they can to stall the economy so they can

, but trails on virtually every other big issue, including medicare, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's runningmate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, hig

headlines. >> we have been talking about tax megeddon at the end of the year when the tax cuts are set to expire and every american would feel it in some form or fashion. now, forget the american tax megeddon, it looks like a global tax megeddon if the united nations gets its way. >> this was discussed at the u.n. general assembly. probably not likely to be instituted or supported by the united states who is already the biggest contribute ter to the u.n. over 20% of the u.n. budget. here is what has been proposed. a 1% tax on billion nargs around the world. a tax on all currency trading in the u.s. a tiny tax on all financial transactions. >> how tiny? >> not sure. >> new taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets. this has for the past year these ideas have been bandied about and the overall overarching goal would be to help transfer money from richations like the united states to poor developing countries. now, what's interesting is that this would be entered into the actual record of what was discussed discussed it at t. when foxnews.com reported on this. they were suddenly se

on this program minutes from now. no letup in tax the rich mania. the u.n. takes aim at the richer people in america and europeans riot again to make them pay for, well, for everything. and then there is this, the european beat americans at golf again. but cheer up, "varney & company" is about to begin. >> good morning, "varney & company," today is monday october the 1st. wednesday is the first presidential debate and the obama campaign spent the weekend trying to low up media expectations that the president's already won. most mainstream polls do indeed have president obama in the lead, but according to rasmussen, governor romney has an edge among certain voters. 43% of likely voters say they are certain they will vote for mitt romney. 42% say they'll vote for the president. that's a very slight edge, but 15% of voters say they are uncommitted, with a number that large, the debate takes on added importance. new jersey governor chris christie in sharp contrast to the media thinks that romney will pull off a clear win this week. listen to this. >> i've seen mitt romney do this before. he'

us more tax increases and more regulated debt. >> eric: talk about the real personal income and durable goods. that is, why? >> what we earn is important to our spending power and standard of living. we are down $4000. and that is real disposable income. and looking over the period of the president's term, we are down $4000 median per household . durable good orders. machines. cars and trucks and planes. down 13 percent. one month that is a decline and that points to recession. >> steve: seems like we are slowing down. over in trouble in europe and nothing on horizon. everybody slog down and america could leave the world out of america could expand and drag the world with it >> eric: personal income is down especially with gas at four bucks a gallon. >> national average 3.80. >> brian: fewer dollars to spend. >> we have food price inflation. our standard of living is declining. are you better off, no. you are not better off. >> steve: stewart i talked to a number of business owners and they were reluctant to hire. if mitt romney is elected president of the united states. wou
to the running mates to do the heavy lifting. joe biden was blasting the romney tax plan with being out of touch with the middle class. >> the romney/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle-class families with a child, one or more children by an additional $2,000 a year. how -- all kidding aside, without the boos. stop all that malarkey. this is deadly ernest, man. this is deadly ernest. how they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify it? >> the romney campaign picked up on that middle class being buried for the last four years during which president obama was in the white house while campaigning in iowa. paul ryan did not miss the opportunity to seize on biden's choice of words. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. of course the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administrati
. how they justify raising taxes on the middle class, buried for the last four years. stuart: that's the back drop of the debate. and this is the latest poll, president obama with a 3 point lead, that's down from the 5 point lead about ten days ago, two weeks ago, we put that entire tape of president obama on our facebook page, please check it out and tell us what you think and we'll read comments in the next hour. vice-president joe biden says the middle class has been buried the past four years, a clear gaffe in my opinion. is he right? i say, yes, he is. we get a democratic congressman's response in, and we'll bring you the opening bell as well. when we got married. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule. i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be
proportionally pays more in taxes than he does. he also ignores class war is waged in the united states in his class is doing it. rather remarkable. i want to talk about events in the euro zone, in europe and how that affects the economic crisis here in your visit to mantra god, which is an example perhaps , a successful example of an alternative to the capitalist economic model in spain. >> first a word about warren buffett. derek and i think the contradictory mess of all of this is that play. i'm the one hand yes, there've always been people like him on the side of the wealthy of the big corporations who have a clear understanding that at a certain point it becomes dangerous to keep going in that direction. you cannot keep having a smaller and smaller number of people doing really well in a sea of people who have a harder and harder time. for a while they push it, but don't kill the goose that lays the golden egg in the end. so buffett is not the only one. there's a whole bunch of people like that who say that and have the courage or comfort of the security to say it. remember also the same
and on the state exchanges, that the congress forced the state to raise taxes and tell them how to pend it the supreme court weighed in on that. the statute is 2700 pages long and there are many other challenges in the court system to other parts of the statu. there are 45 plaintiffs all religious organizations many of them catholic and arch dose dose of new york challenged the so-called employer man date. the employer man date requires employers to buy health insurance that makes services available that violate the employer's values like birth control and abortion and euthaniasia. this would apply to universities and students. can yesterday the supreme court recognized one of the employer mandate challenges made its way to the federal appellate court and the appeals court said we don't want to hear supreme court said we are about to tell the appeals court to hear this. so it can make its way to us. the supreme court will rule on this next year rather than three or four years from now. >> gretchen: what is the messaging from the supreme court that they would tell a court below to rule o
of deficit is economic growth. if economic growth is suppressed you won't get tax revenue you need to bring it down. >> eric: only way to get out of the debt, cutting spending, isn't taxing more, creating growth. only thing that creates growth is -- >> kimberly: did you follow that? >> bob: can i make one point on your statistics. in the 50 years there have been presidents in the last 50 years more republicans held office than democrats and yet democrats twice as many jobs created under democrat president. >> greg: you can't use that. >> kimberly: not under obama. >> greg: the basic thing the job happened here because of this president. you have can't prove that. >> dana: in the "60 minutes" interview when president obama talks about medicare part "d" and complaining that it was unfunded, one, more competitive and cost much less. in obamacare, they actually expand that program greatly. how are we paying for it? middle class tax increases. >> bob: republicans are saying that there is no way they can do away with if it obama is re-elected. that's right. i don't know how you undo a law like th
five trillion dollars on tax cuts that favor the wealthiest americans, jobs and prosperity will rain down from the sky. everybody will be better off. we will live happily ever after. [boo] - vote.oo - [applause] and the problem was what he is trying to sell is we tried that in the last decade. it did not work then, it will not work now, top down economics does not work. this country does not succeed when the richard gere richard. this country succeeds -- rich get richer. this country succeeds when everybody has that chance to live up to their god-given potential. that is when everybody does better. i do not believe we are going to get very far if we have leaders to write off half of the nation as victims to do not take responsibility for their own lives.
